Great to hear Reg.

Awesome to hear that you are getting involved with the selling of these great detectors and providing tuition with each unit sold is a great thing.

Howard has rested with ongoing improvements with more to come.

The QED needs more exposure though. Its not out there. Maybe a QED cap and bumper sticker! A Youtube channel!

My last treatment on my foot yesterday, so no excuses now. I have some ground to cover!1562291903_ec0802dc-e1d4-4e76-984f-215227ea8a03.jpg

Aussiedigs, mate, that is one serious coil you have there. That is my favorite big coil, and surprisingly light. Very well made, and a credit to Rohan. I like where you have mounted your WiFi, and probably better than mounted on the stem where I have mine. Some WiFi units play up with the electronics if mounted on the side of the control box, and the Sennheiser cordless system is one that had me confused for a while until I mounted it further from the box. It was fine then.
You are right about exposure as there many detector operators that have never heard of the QED. A big nugget would solve that problem, however they are getting scarce no matter what detector is being used.

Yes, a credit to Rohan, and brilliant to deal with. Very light coil for its size. I made the wrong call to run it this arvo as i didnt do the travelling between the workings i had intended. Starting off on the lower flats i was getting some deep signals to then dig some big holes! Geez, very hard to pinpoint with! I have alot to learn! So i returned to the ute to fit the 11” Commander mono. Trash trash and more trash!

Reg, where the Quest is mounted is where Northeast had his mounted. Really there is nowhere else to mount it unless you mount it on the casing. Could to the shaft i suppose but it wouldnt be that secure there.

Big nugget? Not over this way. Will have to leave that one up to you!

Now while out this arvo i came across a piece of a roofing tile. What the bloody hell would a piece of roofing tile being doing way up a gully out the middle of nowhere?

On the QED FB site some bloke is having trouble to get a signal response on a 1.5 gram nugget sitting in a hole a couple of inches deep using his QED with a CT 15x10 mono. He has posted a short video of the test. Some advice has been given to him on the settings to use but he has not responded if they had worked.

Don't suppose you've had your hands on one of the new Detech 80cm/32" coils yet Reg.
Very intetesting & only 1.3kg.
New type winding I believe?

mbasko, Sounds interesting. I must give Pete a call and see what he can tell me about it. Lots of interest in coils at the moment with the Russian coils, which have managed to ruffle a few feathers, and there is the Bulgarian concentric coil as well, which could be okay despite the huge price, and the fact that credibility is somewhat compromised by appointing someone who advocates 'radar' detectors to be the chosen tester. Unfortunate choice as it could be construed that it is about as genuine as 'radar' detectors and the so called tester who is currently singing its praises, although it could be a genuine product. Not very well thought out.
On the QED scene is a new 'capsule' coil that shows great promise, and could be available soon. Lots of interesting stuff happening.

Reg I sent an email on your website re pricing on an QED and if these would be okay for a virgin detectorist. I guess not using any other first off there wouldn't be any confusion with how this one operates?

bluknght, actually, your observation is pretty spot on. My nephew some time back bought a QED as his first detector, and took to it like a duck to water, having no previous detector experience. His detector was a PL1, which has been improved markedly with the PL2 with extended mode and ground balancing.
I shall respond to your Email directly, giving you prices on the various options. Thanks for your inquiry.

Blukngt, you will be fine. Im new to detecting but have found the QED to be very straightforward as has so many others new to this hobby. Also Reg is offering 2 hours tuition with a purchase. That would be worth its weight in gold! There is so much professional advise and tips available also.

Also there is this Facebook group for the QED. Howard who manufactures the QED frequents that forum also. https://www.facebook.com/groups/2453086 … up_comment

I'm going to keep an eye on the future updates of the QED, I'm keen to see what is added to it. I see it as a good value upgrade for myself one day down the track after only just starting out in prospecting with buying an old minelab sd2000.

Join that faccebook group then youll get notified first hand re updates. Howard has some changes to the Ground Balancing in the works. Also someone will more than likely post updates here.

Thanks mate, these brilliant machines deserve exposure from someone starting out so others can see that these are an easy machine to operate. Everything is straightforward and commonsense.

Im quite amazed at how many are in my general area. Great to see.

There's no access unless your a Facebook member. Many are not.
Be good if any new info could be posted here too for those forum members that are interested.

I get how you feel. But if you sign up as an alias and stay out of the mainstream crap its no different to being a member of any particular forum. Thats how i do it.

There are some updates/improvements in the works. As they arise ill post them here.

So you have started another one. eh. ?
The reason why this section in PA exists is a lot of folks
don't like Farcebook.
And it is for our members.

Plus we Mod's have control if some thing goes wrong.


A couple of HiBankers inc. accessories, , QED, 4500, SDC2300, Gt1600,
Aldi, A Prado 4x4, A'Van Cruiseliner and a heck of a lot of determination.
Most importantly, A lot of Good Honest Friends. Maybe one day Lucky.

Thanks for your concern but there is admin and moderation there if something does go wrong so i wouldnt let that trouble you. Actually it is more civil on the Facebook group than what it has been here in the past. People will steer clear when there is angst projected at them.

Plenty of people access Facebook and the QED group is proving a popular means of info where professional help can be provided.

Regards.

Umm... I think if a Mod or Mods here had issue with your post then it wouldn't still be here? thumbsdown
They're sailing close to the wind (as are other recent posts) of the forum rules "Posts which appear to have been made with the sole intention of advertising or self promotion will be removed without notice."
This forum has long supported the QED in a more than fair manner & while any help here isn't professional (no payment for assistance) it is truthful, accurate & given freely with good intention.

No offense intended.
We run a tight ship in here and if any one does not
contribute constructively or makes a dick out of
themselves,
No need to say anymore.
I own a QeD and am very fond of it.
Not to mention protective within the rules of this forum.
